War of the Worlds Tripods are Coming to Vaporize Your Model Collection This September
Last January, I wrote a post about Pegasus Hobbies' release of an alien creature model kit based on the invaders from the 2005 version of War of the Worlds. Of course, what good are alien invaders without some kind of terrifying war technology (you hear that, M. Night Shyamalan?), so Pegasus Hobbies will be releasing a 15-inch tall kit of the alien tripod from the same movie this September.
This tripod kit looks like an amazing complementary piece for the previous alien creature kit, as well as for model kits of the alien invaders and the golden war machines from the 1953 version of War of the Worlds. The kit will consist of one alien tripod and will include additional parts--such as deployed arm lasers, tentacles and collection cages--for building you own customized version. For model-making experts who have electrical wiring expertise, the kit will also have a transparent hood and clear eye lenses for possible lighting additions. This studio-accurate tripod comes with a logo display base, and you can pre-order your kit now at Monsters in Motion.
